New Pakistan captain Younis Khan has assured of maintaining a good relationship with the outgoing captain Shoaib Malik who stepped in as Pakistan captain following Pakistan’s first round exit from 2007 World Cup. Terming Malik as a younger brother to him, Younis has confidently said that he expects full support from Malik as he used to do when Malik was captain. Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) took no time to sack Shoaib Malik from his short term captaincy role after the humiliating 234-run defeat at the hands of Sri Lanka team in the third and the final ODI of the three-match ODI series on Saturday.
Younis Khan wants to lead Pakistan from the front like legendary Pakistan captain Imran Khan. The first assignment for Younis Khan as Pakistan captain would be the two-test home series against Sri Lanka, starting from next month.
